"A ‘next-generation’ combination of primary and secondary storage."
The combined solution integrates OpenDrives’ high-performance, low-latency primary storage with Spectra Logic’s StorCycle Storage Lifecycle Management software for workflow productivity and business efficiencies.
“To stay competitive, organisations must continuously evaluate their existing workflows and modernise their IT infrastructures,” said Jeff Braunstein, director of product management, Spectra Logic. “The OpenDrives and Spectra Logic joint solution delivers a ‘next-generation’ combination of primary and secondary storage together with a dynamic storage lifecycle management strategy that ensures data and content is in the right place at the right time.”
OpenDrives’ NAS solutions provide “enterprise-grade primary storage” that is said to be flexible, scalable and fast, delivering low power consumption and high performance. When combined with Spectra’s StorCycle Storage Lifecycle Management software, the joint solution delivers Ethernet-based “scale-out” storage via StorCycle’s ability to identify and migrate inactive data and finished projects from primary storage to a lower cost tier of storage that includes all tiers of cloud storage, spinning disk and tape.
The solution uses open storage standards such as SMB, NFS and LTFS, and can be installed and configured in only a few hours. By reducing data on the primary tier, organisations maximise primary tier storage capacities while configuring the more economical perpetual tier to be as responsive as their workflows demand.
“Any organisation experiencing exponential data growth has had to rely on either throughput, software management, or secondary storage for digital preservation, an often fragmented and costly process,” said Sean Lee, chief product and strategy officer at OpenDrives. “By integrating Spectra Logic’s StorCycle software with OpenDrives’ NAS platform, we’re streamlining data usage, access and protection to help IT and storage managers balance the speed of data access with the cost of storage and take a modern data storage approach.”
